Nassau Photo Spots You Shouldn’t Miss
A Private Beach
Okay, this is likely a given, but if you’re planning vacation photos in Nassau, you have to start at your resort’s private beach. Go in the early morning, so you can get there before the crowds and you’ll be rewarded with beautiful photos that feature the white sands, aquamarine waves, perfectly blue skies, and — of course — you!
Clifton Heritage National Park
If you want something a little more natural, jungle-y and exotic, try Clifton Heritage National Park. On 156 acres, it’s on the more rural side of Nassau, but it boasts prehistoric native remains, ruins of colonial plantations, and some sculpture art. Convenient trails lead you down to what was once a major colonial seaport. The area is also home to lots of great blue herons and sooty terns.
Another historical spot, Queen’s Staircase is a steep limestone set of stairs with 65 steps ascending more than 100 feet. It was used in the 1700s by slaves and soldiers and now is surrounded by beautiful greenery and a waterfall. The staircase is a must on most cruising itineraries, so visit early in the morning, before the cruise ships arrive.
The Long Dock
Known simply as “the long dock,” this is the longest wooden deck in the Bahamas and is great for spotting local birds but also awesome for some above-the-water photos. With nothing but clear waters surrounding you and the shore in the distance, you’ll have paradise-worthy photos for sure.
